Saturday’s Ohio State win was incredible. From incredibly frustrating, to incredibly fun, the Buckeyes claimed the victory at home over the formerly second ranked team in the country, and now have a leg up in the competition for the Big Ten East. After the big win, Ohio State moved up into the No. 3 spot in this week’s AP Poll.

In other Big Ten news, Northwestern served Michigan State its first conference loss of the season, landing the Buckeyes solely at the top of the East division. Wisconsin had a surprisingly close contest with Illinois, but ended up finishing on top 24-10. Nebraska had it’s own 1-point victory over Purdue, finishing the contest 25-24.

There are now two less undefeated teams after a wild Week 9, with Penn State and TCU taking their first losses of the season. Iowa State is on the move, up 11 spots to No. 14 with a win over TCU. Georgia kept their spot towards the top of the rankings, still undefeated after a big 42-7 win over Florida, which will reportedly be the final game in the Jim McElwain era in Gainesville.
